the gop is trying to figure out its next move after governor romney's loss on election day our next guest says the answer is, quote, staring them right in the face, recommending that party leaders look to republican governors who are doing big things around the country. he is the national journal hotline executive editor. you say republican governors out there have solved and confronted a lot of the issues that mitt romney was taking about or maybe not talking about. >> what is remarkable is there is so much soul searching taking place within the republican party especially on capitol hill when it's the governors that have outlined a conservative reform agenda. you look in new jersey when chris christie took office, he was able to pass even saoeultment reform, pension reform with the support of even some democrats who were initially opposed to him. you look at bobby jindal of louisiana who has taken over the republican governor's association and he was able to gain a claim for his leadership in the wake of hurricane katrina and ed indication reform. they are setting a model for how republ
with his national finance committee, governor romney said the obama campaign was, quote: very generous to such groups as young voters, african-americans, and hispanics. according to the reporting of the "new york times" he said with regards to young people, for instance, forgiveness of college loan interest was a big gift. the governor is said to have gone on to say that with regards to hispanic voters, the amnesty for children of illegals, the so-called dream act kids, was a huge plus for that voting group. a member of the u.s. cabinet has apologized for athletic to punch out a reporter in colorado. happened last week when reporter asked ken salazar about the government's wild horse program. he was in colorado to campaign for president obama and he made it clear he was not happy with the question. >> ask me again i will punch you out. don't ever ever from the gazette or anybody else do that to me again. >> you are here as a public figure. >> is he here on his personal time, actually. >> i am here for president obama. i'm talking about the campaign. you want to talk to me about a publi
of massachusetts had a weak consent agreement it was under governor romney's administration. here now, here is deval patrick and under president obama, let's put partisanship aside. let's make sure you have the authority and the resources to do the job. we want eugene the job because we ought to be mindful of the comments that ms. lovelace made and all the other people waiting to see if they are going to die from this contaminated drug. we don't want excuses but we don't want to leave this law on big u.s. because you are always sued if you act and if you assume you have the authority when you don't your call before the committee to save how could you have authority when congress didn't give it to you? i think we have to put our partisanship aside, the election is over, figure out a clear law for the federal government to be able to act because with all due respect, this is not a state issue of drugs being shipped around the country. thank you mr. chairman. >> sure and i will be the first of recognized the chairman of the fda. >> you might not want that job. >> the dr. burgess you are recog
that maybe the gop brand was suffering and had been hurt. why is it that republicans are elected governor, but mitt romney could not win the presidency? >> i think mitt is a good and decent man. we talked a lot about that here yesterday. 30 republican governor, the most we had in a dozen years. most of the battle ground states have republican governors in them leading the way, turning things around, balancing budgets, doing it while lowering tax, seeing revenues go up by improving the economy in each state. i think the reason is we laid out a clear path, clear agenda. people gravitated toward that. and unfortunately, mitt romney's campaign in the end was not able to overcome the early attacks from the obama campaign back in june and they suffered the inability to clearly lay that out. republican governors as a contrast have been able to offer a clear plan for each of our states. we're going to change america one state at a time. we're optimistic about the future with great leadership here. >> gretchen: thanks for getting >> thank you. >> gretchen: your e-mails on oak trees and allergies a
